Iraq reopens border crossing with Iran
Topics: IRAQ BORDER IRAN
In a statement, the commission said the terminal was open to travellers from Iraq to Iran.
The border crossing was closed on Nov. 16 upon a request from Tehran due to protests against fuel price hikes in Iran.
While protests have declined in Iran in recent days, Iraq still sees anti-government demonstrations, that broke out last month against deep-seated corruption and poor living conditions.
According to the Iraq's High Commission for Human Rights, at least 340 Iraqis have been killed and around 15,000 have been injured since the protests began on Oct. 1. ■
